Team Point and Handicap Options

Golf League Tracker has a number of point and handicap options for Team Leagues which can be used alone or combined with other point settings:

Best Ball

Team Best Ball

Team best ball takes the best net score between the two players on a team against the best net score of the other team for each hole, and is played for a specific number of points per hole.

Team High Best Ball

Team High Best Ball is actually "worst ball". It will take the highest net score between the two players on a team against the high net score of the other team, played for a specific number of points per hole. If you combine this with Team Best Ball, you have a "hi-low" type format.

Best Ball Handicap Options

You have three handicap options with best ball:

  • Use the player's full handicaps-A player who is a 5 handicap will get a shot on the 5 lowest handicapped holes, regardless of the handicaps of the other players.
  • Handicap off the low man in the foursome-If the lowest player in the foursome is a 3 handicap, everybody else will have 3 strokes deducted from their handicap, and the 3 handicap will play to a 0.
  • Base the handicap on the difference of players in the same flight-If the "A" player on team 1 is a 5 handicap, and the "A" player on team 2 is a 8 handicap, the "A" player on team 2 would receive 3 strokes, and the "A" player on team 1 would receive 0 strokes. The same would apply to the "B" flight

Team Totals

Team totals will take the net score of the team matched against the net score of the opponent per hole for a certain number of points.

Team Totals Handicap Options

You have four options with team totals for handicaps:

  • Use the player's full handicaps-A player who is a 5 handicap will get a shot on the 5 lowest handicapped holes, regardless of the handicaps of the other players.
  • Handicap off the low man in the foursome-If the lowest player in the foursome is a 3 handicap, everybody else will have 3 strokes deducted from their handicap, and the 3 handicap will play to a 0.
  • Base the handicap on the difference of players in the same flight-If the "A" player on team 1 is a 5 handicap, and the "A" player on team 2 is a 8 handicap, the "A" player on team 2 would receive 3 strokes, and the "A" player on team 1 would receive 0 strokes. The same would apply to the "B" flight
  • Difference in the team's handicap total-If team 1's total handicap was 20, and team 2's total handicap is 25, team 2 will get 5 strokes, or 1 stroke on the 5 lowest handicapped holes, after totaling the player's actual (gross) scores.
